Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham
under the patronage of Blessed John Henry Newman

In this section:


Welcome to the Parish Church of Our Lady of Lourdes, Sheffield where the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham meets to offer Mass according to the Ordinariate Use. Everyone is welcome and all Catholics in communion with the Holy See are permitted to receive the Sacraments with us. These Masses are listed by referring to Dates for your diary opposite.

While we are certainly untraditional in our structure we are traditional in our forms of worship using the liturgical celebrations proper to the Anglican Tradition which have been approved by the Holy See, so as to maintain the liturgical, spiritual and pastoral traditions of the Anglican Communion within the Catholic Church.

We are in communion with the Universal Church because we believe that having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, through the Church he established, is in accordance with the unity for which our Lord prayed. We discover the healing of Christ’s Church through our communion within the Catholic Church and it is our mission to continually call other Christians to begin that same healing and unity we have started to experience ourselves.



The next Mass at the Catholic Church of Our Lady of Lourdes, Spring Water Avenue, Hackenthorpe, will next take place on Monday 22nd October at 11.00am.    This will be followed by lunch at a local hostelry. Everyone is welcome.


Many thanks to everyone who supported the High Mass at the Cathedral Church of Saint Anne. This was the first Ordinariate Mass in the Leeds Diocese and over fifty people attended. It is now hope to establish a group at Bradford on Saturday, 6th October at Saint Joseph's Parish Church, 40 Packington Street, Bradford, BD5 7LD at 3pm. Please pray for the continued growth of the Ordinariate in Yorkshire.


We shall hold our annual Strictly Party at the home of Beryl and Father Stafford which has become a unique and enjoyable event when as we try to match the score of the lead judge on Strictly Come Dancing. This will take place on the evening of Saturday the 24th November. The numbers are limited so please contact Beryl ASAP. The evening will include the traditional Pie and Pea Supper. Please make a provisional note in your diary.
